From Daily Grind
To Calmer Mind
Are you tired of feeling exhausted and overwhelmed and want to make a change?
Life can feel so busy, trying to juggle all of life's responsibilities, balancing our career with our home life, it can often leave us feeling overwhelmed, exhausted and stuck.
Then adding in the challenges of the last 19 months, this has certainly had an impact on so many people's mental wellbeing.
We all know the importance of taking care of ourselves, eating healthily, taking regular exercise, getting a good night sleep, taking time out for ourselves, but we can often find this hard to put into practice, especially when we are so busy juggling all of our roles and responsibilities, there is often no time left to take time for ourselves.
In support of this year's World Mental Health Day I will be running a FREE workshop to look at how we can break the cycle of stress and overwhelm and take steps to start to regain a sense of control and gain balance in our life, so we can have more time and energy to invest in the things most important to us and feel happier, calmer and more confident.
Hi, I'm Jo, a certified Life Management and Mindset Coach.
I used to feel like I was living in a constant cycle of stress and overwhelm from trying to juggle all of life's responsibilities, balancing my career with my family, my home and even my health, that I was often left feeling exhausted.
I used to think that once I got on top of my to-do-list, once I completed a particular project in work, once I had made sure everyone else was OK, I could then take some time for myself, but this time never seemed to happen. Or if I did take time for myself, I would feel guilty or think I had "wasted" it doing something unproductive.
I felt like the proverbial swan, on the surface I appeared calm, confident and in control, but underneath I felt like I was treading water.
My mind would be constantly on the go thinking about what I needed to do next or overthinking everything, so much so, I found it hard to switch off. My inner critic constantly telling me I wasn't good enough.
I used to feel stuck, thinking this is just how life is and there is nothing I can do about it. However, everything changed when I started to look inwards and I discovered that, whilst there are some things in life that I can't control, I could change the way I thought and how I felt and way I responded to things.
I now feel so much happier, calmer and confident in myself and I now know how to prioritise my own wellbeing so I have more time and energy to do the things I love and be there for others.
Does this sound like you?
Do you find trying to JUGGLE ALL OF LIFE'S RESPONSIBILITIES from your career, to you family, home, relationships and even your own health leaves you feeling OVERWHELMED AND EXHAUSTED?
Do you have a LONG NEVER ENDING LIST OF THINGS TO DO and no matter how hard you work, you're often LEFT FEELING LIKE YOU ARE NOT GOOD ENOUGH.
Are you fed up of feeling that EVERYTHING IS ON YOU to get things done?
Are you so BUSY BEING THERE FOR EVERYONE ELSE that your needs, wants and desires are at the BOTTOM OF THE PILE?
Do you find it HARD TO SWITCH OFF, constantly thinking about the next thing to do, spending hours OVERTHINKING things, playing it over and over in your mind, or worrying about something that hasn't even happened?
Do you find yourself saying yes to everything as you DON'T LIKE TO LET PEOPLE DOWN?
Do you feel like THE STRONG ONE, being there for everyone else and getting everything done, but you FIND IT HARD TO ASK FOR HELP yourself?
